The latest TV spot for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story offers a few glimpses at new footage but offers nothing substantial. What’s important about this spot is that it reveals the film has been officially rated PG-13. Considering this is supposed to be a war film and a darker entry into the Star Wars franchise it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. This marks the third Star Wars film to be rated PG-13 along with Revenge of the Sith and The Force Awakens.
Pre-sale tickets have yet to become available but I would be ready at the computer on November 24, at 8 pm. ET/PT. During the Disney Magical Holiday Celebration on ABC, we will get an exclusive look at Rogue One in what will most likely be a very short featurette offering a few glimpses of new footage interlaced with interviews from the cast. Chances are tickets will go on sale then as it would be a perfect opportunity to make the announcement while families are together celebrating Thanksgiving.
